I was going to stop but then I keep seeing the DUMB argument that we somehow think it's all Bradley... as if we don't know it's the ENTIRE team playing better... I mean, the argument is stupid considering NOT ONE person has said it's all Bradley (forget the people with tongue-in-cheek)!!!
You people are DISCOUNTING the affect AB had on those other players which in turn made them give more effort and also put them back in the roles they are more suited for!!
RR was able to go back to working passing lanes instead of having to work so hard fighting over many screens, he doesn't have to pressure the ball as much... AB does great what RR doesn't so RR can go back to doing what he is great at. Please read the article where RR gushed on AB (or any interview after the games)!
Jet can go back to a bench role (where he is more comfortable)... he get's to play with Lee in the second unit which is better for him and Lee. Jet and Lee are our sparks off the bench scoring/defense.
KG and our PF/Centers don't have to help as much off their men, so they can conserve more energy (no one would hedge their men when they would help, that caused problems too)!
AB makes the opponents use more of the clock to start their offensive possessions, then to try and combat that the teams try to get the offense started quicker by letting someone else bring the ball up, that then throws off their offensive sets since the ball is in a place/someone else hands they didn't want it to be! So now you either have a short clock and/or you have a messed up offensive set.
Then you have his energy, which everyone else feeds off of. Like PP said, when AB is out there going hard, it makes me want to go hard too (along those lines)! AB's energy is infectious!
His play does a lot of little things that the box score wont show but I'm glad the team knows his worth even if others don't... that's all that matters! Every team needs a player like AB, no one is suggesting he is the only player that can do this. He just happens to be that guy for our team!
